I took my kids into the Forbidden Planet shop in Liverpool today. My stars, what a rip-off! My son said it best when he picked up a Star Wars figure and said "Why is this three pounds more than the one in Asda?" Why indeed, Son. It was nice to see a lot of stuff of which I was unaware (where else would you find all the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons manuals?) but I wouldn't pass my hard-earned over the counter, not as long as my arse looks south.
